Chile smartphone sales down 6% in 2018 - study

Thursday 6 December 2018 | 11:24 CET | News
The number of smartphones sold in Chile will fall for the first time in 11 years to just under 8 million in 2018, reports Publimetro, citing an IDC study. Market saturation and other factors such as a fall in tourism numbers will result in handset sales of 7.99 million, down 5.7 percent compared to the 8.44 million units sold last year. Overall sales of consumer devices (also including tablets, notebooks and PCs) are set to fall by around 8 percent year on year from 11.40 million units in 2017 to 10.56 million units this year, added the report.
